After visiting the small Hofbrauhaus in Panama City Beach, Florida, I looked forward to the much bigger, more authentic Hofbrauhaus in Newport, KY. Afterall, they brew the beer on premises, unlike at the Panama City Beach location.
When we arrived we decided to sit in the quiet section, away from the band. The room was warm, very warm. We ordered pretzels with beer cheese and half liters of the Helles. The beer and pretzels arrived quickly but without saucers for the pretzels and cheese. Our waiter never returned so I had to seek out another waiter for plates. By this time the hot pretzels were cool. Also, the "beer cheese" was nothing more that melted velveeta. We finished our beer (which was very good) and left.
I was very disappointed, but I am willing to give this place another try.

Reasonably authentic German beer house, right by the touristy levee area in Newport. Large, open dining area with community tables. Some bar rail seating, which is where we sat.

The German style beers were nicely done, and served in full or 1/2 liter mugs. In my opinion they were not fantastic, but certainly well worth drinking. They have a can filling station for to go consumption, but they seemed a bit pricey.

The food menu was fairly large, we just split a appetizer sampler plate which was huge , consisting of sauerkraut balls, potato pancakes, fried pickles etc. It was more than enough for two at a reasonable price.

Would return.

excellent place for a good night of German food and good beer. They established a new beer, the Hofbrau Hallodri, which was excellent!

I would definitely return, as the food, service, and atmosphere were absolutely awesome!

Not necessarily the place to go if you're on a tight budget, but the price for the portion size is awesome! We almost always bring home leftovers!
